Homemade Wheat Bread

I haven’t bought bread in two years. Not once have I regretted it. It is a much better quality, and I enjoy being in the kitchen and having 20 minutes of peace. Though that is still unlikely. Baby boy will still probably be pulling on my shirt half of the time asking for something.

Since I am good at multitasking, and since most of bread making is down time, I try to get my cleaning done so I don’t have to do it later.When I forget to start the bread in the morning (so we can have fresh made bread for our lunch) I simply make some pita pockets so it’s no biggy.

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese {Skip The Box!}

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese {Skip The Box} | Ten at the Table

I was raised on Tyson chicken nuggets, Ramen noodles, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Chef Boyardee Ravioli and  Kraft mac and cheese. When we switched to homemade, it was pretty abrupt and I am pretty sure I had processed food withdraw. Not really, but I really missed the convenience and yumminess!

I have tried many, many recipes to try to replace the boxed stuff.  And let me just tell you, they were all good. Well, most of them were but they just weren’t quite like the kind I was raised on. So I figured I’d play around with the ingredients, add a little bit of this, less of that, and I finally found the PERFECT recipe.

Homemade Corn Dogs

Corn dogs bring back so many great memories for me. But ever since I started trying to eat healthier, I knew buying processed corn dogs from the freezer aisle wasn’t the best choice. Especially when I took a look at the ingredients label. Corn syrup, soy products, and nitrates? No thanks. But when I found a recipe on Pinterest for homemade corn dogs, I knew it was worth a shot. Luckily, they turned out perfectly and were a hit with the family.

10 Tips For Growing Strawberries {Like A Boss}

10 Tips for Growing Strawberries {Like A Boss} | Ten at the Table

This is our third year growing strawberries as well as our third year of research. The first year was a complete and utter failure. We weren’t “gardeners” at the time so we didn’t water it, weed it, feed it, or make sure not to step on/drive over it. Yeah, our “garden” was right in front of our “drive-way” (ahem) grass (ahem). Then the second year we decided we wanted a garden so my father, an all or nothin’ type of guy, decided to build this massive structure.

But still didn’t tend much to our strawberries, and got literally 2 berries off of our three plants.  So then on our third year we planted 10 more plants and did a whole lot of research. And I do mean a lot, my friend.
